Accidentally revealed PlayStation 3 game Syphon Filter 4 aims "revolutionise" stealth by using a brand new fancy-pants engine developed by Sony London.

A proper unveiling will happen at E3, with a full release pencilled for Q4 2012.

That's according to a supposed pulled announcement on the US PlayStation blog. The details were recorded by members of the Giantbomb and GameTrailers forums.

Sony Europe told Eurogamer it refused to comment on "rumour and speculation".

Syphon Filter is a third-person action game in the ilk of Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell: you're a stealthy soldier who achieves the impossible. In Syphon Filter's case, you fill the boots of Gabe Logan.

Syphon Filter and Syphon Filter 3 (no SP2) are both available from the PlayStation Store (when that itself is once more available). Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow are PSP games, and good ones at that.
